Government data up to April 7 shows that of the 37,899,029 jabs given in the UK so far, 31,807,124 were first doses – a rise of 99,530 on the previous day.

Some 6,091,905 were second doses, an increase of 408,396.

The UK’s death toll has now risen to 126,980 according to the Department of Health figures.

Separate figures published by the UK’s statistics agencies show there have been 150,000 deaths registered in the UK where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.
